Gift Box - using Botanical Butterfly Designer Series Paper - Video Tutorial

Hi There! 

I have another Video Tutorial to share with you today showing you how to create this Gift Box.

I also take you through how I calculate the measurements for the box and cardstock size I need. I know some people struggle with adapting a tutorial to fit what they want to use the box for - e.g. to hold a larger or smaller item - so I hope this can help you :o)

You will see that the design for the card is very similar to those in my previous post :o) I wanted to do a coordinating box and card for my friend's birthday yesterday so chose this design because it was so pretty and quick!

There is no stamping on the Box. The Butterflies come from the same paper pack as the background paper - Botanical Butterfly - and they were all punched out with the Butterfly Duet punch.

The papers are part of the Sale-a-Bration promotion. You can choose them for FREE with a qualifying purchase of £45.

The Butterflies are Black and White, but you could colour these using whatever medium you prefer, so they are very versatile. I just left them as is though :o)

The sentiment comes from the Beautiful Bouquet stamp set. I stamped it with Memento Black ink using the Stamparatus and then stamped right over the top of that using Versamark ink. This was then embossed using Clear powder.

Here is the Video for the Box ...
